WEEE regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) came into force in this country on the 1st July 2007. The Directive aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic goods on the environment by increasing re-use and recycling, and reducing the amount of WEEE going to landfill.

The introduction of the WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment) legislation has meant that our clients now have additional responsibilities with regard to their IT waste. This directive clearly identifies the standards of compliance required when disposing of or recycling all IT equipment.

The rule of thumb is if it’s fitted with a plug, uses batteries, requires charging or the label has a crossed-out wheelie bin logo on it? Contact us to discuss the best option for it’s removal and disposal.

* Fridges, Freezers, Lead Acid Batteries, Old TVs & CRT Monitors (see Hazardous Waste)
